River Red Gum, Late Afternoon


River Red Gum, Late Afternoon
38.5 cm (w) x 27.5 cm (h), pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.

This tree stands tall and proud in late afternoon sunlight, which is becoming more coloured by the minute. This pastel was produced on-site, from the western side of Brighton Road at Somerton Park, looking towards the eastern side of Brighton Road. I was keen to try to capture the glow of colour and light at that time of the afternoon, a little before sunset. I needed to come back on multiple days of similar weather conditions, at exactly the same time of the day.

Our Prunus in the Sun


Our Prunus in the Sun
27.5 cm (w) x 37 cm (h), conté and pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.

Drawn on-site, from along the side of our house (at that time), looking towards our front yard.

There were lovely sunlit colours, rich reds from the dark red leaves being lit up from the back with sunlight, and an interesting shadow being cast onto the wall of our house. I added some colour to the shadow to try to suggest the movements that were occurring in the gentle breeze.

Standing a good distance behind the prunus are the large river red gums that line our street.
